Digital Beat Down is a live electronica duo that fuses synthetic
textures and organic instrumentation to create dance friendly
compositions with a prog-rock twist. The distinctive feature of
Digital Beat Down is their ability to draw on the ethos of the DJ
culture while still providing the intangible live band experience. The
duo thrives on creating carefully crafted songs and multi-layered live
looping jams that invite the listener on a psychetronic journey
through the depths of dirty Drum & Bass, to smooth Deep House, to
Crackin' Breaks, or finished off by their bone penetrating brand of
sub bass driven Dub-Step funk.
The duo was formed in Denver, CO in the fall of 2008, by Andrew Lubner
on (drums and samples) and Nick Pilz on (synths, samples and loops).
Digital Beat Down is a high energy attack. Lubner mounts a relentless
assault on the drums and sampler pad, and Pilz thumps the low end
while he warps and weaves the dark melodies and subtle textures that
define the band. In their first year, Digital Beat Down broke in to
the Denver/Boulder scene and successfully toured throughout Oklahoma,
Arkansas, Illinois, and Wisconsin. With explosive live shows and a
tenacious drive, the band is poised to explode on to the national
scene and beyond.
